The idea that an attacker would somehow get hold of your phone, take it to pieces, change the sensor and replace it where you left it without you noticing is fanciful to say the least. It would be much easier to get hold of your real fingerprint, of which you leave a copy in thousands of different places every day, and use that to access your device.

Agreed. The UI is superior to both IOS and Android and really is a joy to use. My employer recently gave me a new Lumia to replace the iPhone 5 they gave me previously. After some initial protests I was really taken by how slick the interface is.

Apps are the problem. My bank doesn't provide one for WP and a number of others I have used regularly are either unavailable or inferior to their IOS and Android counterparts. It also has an image problem and I think it was a mistake to drop the Nokia branding. Microsoft may have good brand recognition but it is far from a trusted brand.

My wife and I just ordered new iPhone 6s' yesterday because of this exact issue.

So your restaurant just served you a shit sandwich and now you're going to reward them by returning to dine on their full three-course set menu of shit.

You and others like you are the precise cause of this problem.

I worked in a water testing lab many years ago. This lead is almost certainly coming from lead pipes and solder because the pH of the water is too low. Raising the pH to 7.5-8.5 would minimise plumbosolvency and combining that with phosphate dosing would practically eliminate it.

> 2) fuel consumption: at supersonic speeds, they suck gas like it's going out of style.

Not as much as you'd think, the Concorde supercruised at Mach 2 without the burners, and in the cruise the Olympus engines were astonishingly efficient even by modern standards.

Take off, climb out, sub-sonic and transonic flight was the real fuel slurper with the Concorde.
